Creative INSET programme

A series of full-day creative CPD sessions exploring how a range of art forms can be used in the classroom

A New Direction’s 2018/19 INSET programme offers a series of full-day CPD sessions for teachers at any stage of their career working in primary, secondary and special schools. This year, we have developed an exciting programme, co-delivered with the following Artsmark Partners in their inspirational venues:

  • Punchdrunk (session took place on 22 November 2018)
  • Emergency Exit Arts (session took place on 30 January 2019)
  • The Place (session took place on 22 March 2019)
  • London Transport Museum (took place on 20 May 2019)
  • English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS)

The INSET programme will introduce schools to a range of cultural sector offers in London, covering Drama and creative storytelling, Visual Arts, Dance, Music, object handling and Heritage. This is a fantastic opportunity to discover new organisations, learn how they work with schools and find out what they have to offer.

The organisations co-delivering will also be able to support Artsmark-registered schools with ideas for delivery and evidence of impact.

The day-long sessions are designed to inspire and re-energise teachers, giving you time and space to experience new creative approaches and reflect on how you can embed these in your practice. Each session will teach specialist skills which can easily be transferred to the classroom.
